Byron Bay Side Central Motel
Ranked #31 of 34 Hotels in Byron Bay
Reviewed November 5, 2011

Out dated decor, grubby, no noise policy a joke as it was very noisy, smell of restaurant downstairs in the room all the time. Staff were unfriendly and weren't interested in you nor wanted to give any local info for things to see and do. Saving grace was secure parking, laundry facilities for free and location.

Byron Bay is full of noisy holiday makers and people having fun. We stayed while there were 2 major grand finals, on a long weekend, in the middle of school hols. and had an interrupted but not unbearable nights sleep. If you can accept it's a noisy town and realise that the cost of this hotel is in the budget range for one right in the middle of town you can have a good stay, as we did with a family of four and friends of the same group size (Kids aged 12 - 15). The management were very helpful with our booking and booked us into rooms in a side wing to try to ensure not too much passing traffic, we had a good little balcony to store surfboards and wetsuits. Rooms are basic but comfortable, beds were comfy and the underground parking was good to have. We booked because the family room was $200 a night for four and management was willing for us to stay 2 nights when all other available accommodation that weekend insisted on a 3 or 5 night minimum.

We were happy with most things regarding the room. Not very soundproof but with the 'no noise' policy after 10pm, it's ok. We felt we needed a table to sit at for dinner, although we could eat out on the balcony but it was too cold. Free wireless internet is very handy although it only worked in one corner of the room probably because we were furtherest away from the office. The lady in the office (Katherine), was fantastic and provided excellent service with a smile. We would go back for sure.

Room Tip: Most rooms do not have aircon so if you really need it during summer, make sure you specify it.

This is a simple, clean motel with some good rules (no smoking or noise). The location is good, close to the centre of Byron Bay's cbd and a few blocks from the beach. For me, it was nice and close to my favorite dive centre - my reason for being in town.

I have no complaints about this place at all. It is everything you would expect from an inexpensive motel and I recommend it for a short stay in Byron if you're on a tight budget.

We were impressed with the size of the unit, with the no smoking rule that carried a $50 fine if breached and the noise eradication after 10 pm policy: "Please no noise after 10 pm out of respect for other guests - phone 9 reception to report any noise". Highly recommended.

Many things appealed to us about this motel. The staff is friendly and we felt right at home after our long international flight. Central location - only a couple of minutes walk from everything whether it is main beach, shops, restaurants, movies or nightlight. The rooms are clean and it was easy to cook most of our meals after we had shopped at the local supermarket around the corner. If we didn’t feel like cooking there was a cafeteria in the complex that provided delicious meals. There were also other shops and facilities in the complex and all the people were really friendly. We could get our hair done, a beauty treatment or a foot massage without even leaving the complex. Whether you are looking for an activity packed few days, a quiet relaxing holiday or a business stopover this motel is a great choice.
